The Phoenix Suns made a lot of noise back in February when the team pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Brooklyn Nets for superstar forward Kevin Durant.
The trade took everyone in the league by surprise, as it wasn’t even publicly known that Durant was available on the trade market.
The Suns instantly put themselves in the title-contending conversation with the addition of Durant, and justifiably so, but the new-look squad ended up falling short to the eventual NBA champion Denver Nuggets in the second round of the playoffs.
Despite the Suns giving Nikola Jokic and company their toughest challenge in the postseason by beating the Nuggets twice, Phoenix was determined to make more changes in the offseason as they parted ways with Monty Williams, hired Frank Vogel, and brought in sharpshooter Bradley Beal in another blockbuster trade.
It appears the Suns might not be done making changes, as star guard Devin Booker teased some new jerseys for Phoenix on his Instagram story recently, via NBA Retweet.

With the Suns pulling out all the stops and making a ton of changes to become a legitimate title contender, Phoenix will be put under the microscope during the 2023-24 campaign, with some high expectations for this team to be the biggest threat to the Nuggets in the Western Conference.
As a result of putting so much money on the line with their three superstars, the Suns will be under a ton of pressure to be a title contender, which could be disastrous if the team can’t put it together next season.NEXT: Suns Star Predicted To Be Traded If The Team Has Bad Start
